US envoy notes critical role of civil society

The projects also impact a diversity of locations in Monaragala, Hambantota, Matale, Anuradhapura, Colombo, Matara, Galle, Horana, Ampara, Jaffna, Seenigama, Tangalle, Anuradhapura, Rathnapura, Batticaloa, Katunayake, and the Koggala Free Trade Zone. This is the sixth year the Embassy has supported Youth Empowerment Grants, funding a total of $852,588 (nearly LKR 120 million) for 95 projects during this period. (Colombo Gazette) The 16 winning recipients were chosen from an extremely competitive pool of proposals and span important issues such as the environment, youth skills development, cultural exchanges, gender-based violence, and improving educational and economic development. The United States awarded nearly $150,000 (approximately LKR 21,000,000) to 16 civil society organizations as part of the US Embassy’s annual Youth Empowerment Grants, an innovative way to provide seed funding for up-and-coming groups working on solutions to problems affecting youth across Sri Lanka.“This year’s International Day of Democracy emphasizes the critical role of civil society and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to help social and political challenges,” said U.S. Ambassador Atul Keshap.  “The United States is proud to help young people in Sri Lanka use their energy and creativity to improve their communities.” read more

2003 finances generally positive despite precarious budget UN official says

“We have a better news situation,” the Under-Secretary-General for Management Catherine Bertini told a press briefing at UN Headquarters in New York. Summing up figures for 2003, she said that more Member States were paying their debts in the year in which they were owed. Meanwhile, peacekeeping cash should remain at a comfortable level – with 2003 payments and credits exceeding new assessments – although shortages in some UN missions existed and debt to Member States was expected to increase.Regarding the indicators on unpaid assessments as of 2003, Ms. Bertini said the regular budget position had “slipped somewhat” with unpaid assessed contributions increasing despite more nations paying. The already precarious situation of the International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia had gotten much worse, she noted, saying a handful of Member States accounted for over 86 per cent of the shortfall.While last year was first that the Organization had not had to borrow from the regular budget, the projection for the current year was that it might have to, Ms. Bertini said. Last year also saw a turnaround in the number of Member States paying regular budget assessments in full by the end of the year, with 131 countries having done so, breaking a negative trend since the number peaked at 141 in 2000.”A strong financial base is a prerequisite for the United Nations ability to carry out the many important tasks entrusted to it by Member States,” Ms. Bertini said, adding that improving the Organization’s financial situation remained a high priority for Secretary-General Kofi Annan. read more

Canadian dollar shakes off early losses as greenback loses momentum

Canadian dollar shakes off early losses as greenback loses momentum AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 7, 2013 4:23 pm MDT TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed higher Monday as commodity prices bounced off the lows of the session and the U.S. currency weakened.The loonie gained 0.14 of a cent to 101.45 cents US while the currency also continued to find lift from Friday’s much stronger then expected December employment report.The economy created 40,000 jobs last month. Economists thought that only about 5,000 positions would be turned out in December after job creation had surged by 59,000 in November.The loonie had been lower earlier in the day as the greenback strengthened against many other currencies on speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve might end its bond-buying stimulus program in the second half of 2013.The American currency has strengthened in recent days after minutes from the Fed’s latest policy meeting last month showed a split over how long to continue the purchases. Some policy-makers have concerns that the continued bond purchases, known as quantitative easing, may destabilize the economy.The February crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange erased early losses and gained a dime to US$93.19 a barrel.March copper dipped two cents to US$3.69 a pound while February gold bullion shed $2.60 to US$1,646.30 an ounce.Traders also took in a move by global regulators to ease new rules obliging lenders to set capital aside. The so-called Basel III rules are a set of new international standards to make sure banks don’t fall back into the sort of trouble that caused the 2008 financial crash. On Sunday, the officials setting those rules delayed the date by which certain amounts of cash had to be readily available.Amid the biggest beneficiaries on equity markets were ailing Spanish banks, which some had feared would struggle to meet the new cash requirements. read more

Back row, from left: David Williams, Marypat Corbett, Matt Gast, Gerry Hayden, David Lueck, Jim Wilson, Treasurer Stan Born, Kurt Maurath, Tim Bardole and Bill Wykes. Not shown: Thomas Kentner, Jeff Lynn, Steve Reinhard and Ed Beaman.American Soybean Association (ASA) President Ron Moore confirmed 19 fellow soybean growers from across the nation to lead the ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) Program Committee in 2017-18. The importance of their work in long-term market development was underscored on Aug. 10 when the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced U.S. farmers are expected to produce a record-high soybean crop this year at 4.38 billion bushels.“WISHH strives for long-term market development and is always looking over the hill to the next market for U.S. soy,” Moore said, while announcing the WISHH committee. Officers are: Chairman Daryl Cates (IL); Vice Chair Levi Huffman (IN); Treasurer Stan Born (IL); and Secretary George Goblish (MN).New WISHH Committee Members include: Matt Gast (ND), representing the North Dakota Soybean Council, and Gerry Hayden (KY) representing ASA. They will serve alongside soybean growers from 11 other states. Other new faces to the WISHH Committee include David Lueck (MO), United Soybean Board Director David Williams, a Michigan soybean grower, and U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) Chief Operations Officer Ed Beaman; all of these individuals will serve as ex-officio members of the committee. Returning WISHH Committee Members include the officers as well as Tim Bardole (IA); Ryan Cahoon (NC); Thomas Kentner (IL); Jeff Lynn (IL); Kurt Maurath (KS); Steve Reinhard (OH); Dawn Scheier (SD); Roberta Simpson-Dolbeare (IL); Jim Wilson (MI); and Bill Wykes (IL), representing ASA.Moore thanked retiring WISHH Committee Members Art Wosick (ND) and E.L. Reed (MO) as well as USSEC ex-officio member Marypat Corbett.“WISHH’s Program Committee’s leadership is important to U.S. soybean growers as well as the many companies and customers in developing countries that seek to use U.S. soy in livestock feeds and human foods,” Moore said. “Cooperative efforts between WISHH and these emerging economies increase opportunities for trade.”Cates added that WISHH leverages U.S. soybean farmer checkoff dollars 6 to 1.“And that’s just the beginning,” he said. “WISHH further multiplies Qualified State Soybean Board dollars through international private-sector partner investments. The right formula for trade grows markets for U.S. soy farmers, and at the same time, improves lives for people abroad. WISHH works with international companies and organizations that purchase U.S. soy. These buyers invest thousands of their own dollars to research and promote soy-based foods and feeds made with U.S. soy in emerging markets.”last_img read more

Natural ways to boost Immunity in children

first_imgIt is natural for parents to protect their children from any harm, including the endless array of germs they are exposed to every day.As children grow up, they are continuously exposed to various germs, especially in places such as daycare centres and preschool. Children with low immunity are highly susceptible to various types of infections. The high incidence of infections has led to an increased and inappropriate use of antibiotics, which has further resulted in antimicrobial resistance. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAntimicrobial resistance, a widespread problem, takes places when microbes build resistance against the medications intended to kill them due to overuse. It is one ofthe world’s most pressing public health problems. The best way to tackle this is to build a strong immunity, which naturally protects your child from infections. Experts share a few tips that can help boost your child’s immunity.Healthy DietA healthy diet that comprises all fundamental components like proteins, minerals, vitamins, micronutrients and unsaturated fats in optimum quantity, helps build the immunity required to fight against various infections or diseases in children. Citrus fruits, carrots, green leafy vegetables, beans, strawberry, yogurt, garlic, and ginger help build immunity with their immunity-boosting properties. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveAdequate SleepSleep deprivation suppresses the functionality of the immune system, which makes children susceptible to infections. Adequate sleep is an absolute necessity to rejuvenate the body. Newborns need up to 18 hours of sleep a day, toddlers require 12 to 13 hours, and preschoolers need about 10 hours of sleep.Hygiene Maintaining hand hygiene before and after each meal, after playtime, handling pets, blowing the nose, using the restroom and arriving home from daycare helps prevent infections in children. Herbal SolutionsDespite taking proper care, children’s immunity may be affected. Consumption of herbal dietary supplements like Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia), Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Yashtimadhu (Glycyrrhiza glabra), and Guggulu (Balsamodendron mukul) can help children stay healthier as they help build immunity.”Naturally obtained supplements strengthen the immune system. Herbs like Guduchi, Yashti Madhu, and Guggulu are natural sources of antioxidants. The antiviralproperty of Yashtimadhu also helps manage asthma, bronchitis, and chronic cough. The anti-inflammatory property of Guggulu helps reduce inflammation,” experts said.A combination of herbs may be a safe and effective adjuvant to antimicrobials in the management of recurrent infections. When co-prescribed with antibiotics, herbs mayhelp in faster recovery, reduces duration and cost of therapy, preventing reinfections.last_img read more

How to Prepare Your Business Data for the End of the World

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. According to the ancient Mayan calendar, the current cycle of the world is coming to an end on December 21, 2012. But even if their prediction doesn’t come true, it’s a good idea to prepare your business for a potential data emergency.Pete Khanna, CEO of the Denver-based software company TrackVia, says entrepreneurs face a whole host of potentially dangerous situations every day.”Sometimes an emergency can appear small, like the executive employee who loses his laptop or smart phone containing sensitive information,” he says. “Other emergencies are larger and more obvious, such as the recent storms in the northeast that flooded offices and buildings, and destroyed equipment and data for thousands of businesses.” Related: How to Create a Disaster Plan for Your BusinessWhether it’s the end of the world or a lost cell phone, entrepreneurs should be prepared. Khanna offers these three steps for protecting your information, and your sanity. December 19, 2012 First, take inventory. Khanna says most businesses don’t know what information they have, let alone what information needs protection. “For example, a sales employee may have a spreadsheet containing all of the company’s key customers, their contact information, and maybe even sensitive information like credit card numbers or buying history,” he says. “Start by identifying what information you have, what information is critical to the business, where it’s located, and who’s in charge of managing or maintaining it.”Next, develop a plan. Once you’ve identified your critical information, protect it with physical security and internal processes.”Physical security may be as simple as knowing who has office keys,” says Khanna. “It may also include employee badges, which secure and track access in and out of a facility. Internal processes may be something simple, like outlining steps for granting or limiting access to key documents. Another example is defining a process for destroying and dealing with paper copies of sensitive data.”Finally, back up your data. The technology you choose should fit your data protection needs, says Khanna. On-premise back-up solutions range from making copies of information onto CDs to having back-up servers on premise. However, the obvious disadvantage of this approach is that it doesn’t protect against natural disasters that occur in the immediate area.”If you’re protecting critical information that people need to safely and securely access to do their work, cloud solutions are key,” he says. Many cloud providers use military-grade reinforced data facilities dispersed around the world, so if the disaster is more localized, you data will have a better chance of survival.  Related: The Advantages and Disadvantages of Cloud Storage Apps for Business Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » min readlast_img read more

Todays Wearables Suck and Why Tomorrows Wont

first_imgSeptember 2, 2014 Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 6 min read Co-written by Cindy ChongImagine this: You are gently roused from sleep by your smart wristband’s vibrating alarm, perfectly timed to ensure you feel the most alert and refreshed. And just before you open your eyes to greet the day, you see your entire schedule in a calendar illuminated on your contact lenses.As you get out of bed and walk to the bathroom, your lab-at-home already knows you weigh 0.2 pounds less this morning than you did 24 hours ago, that your blood analytes indicate you should have skipped last night’s hamburgers and had something healthier instead and that given your levels of serotonin today, you will probably be slightly irritated for the greater part of the a.m. (so try to avoid that annoying colleague today).This could be a scene out of an ordinary morning in the near future, all made possible by wearable technology. After decades of tinkering and being colorfully depicted in the media (think The Jetsons, Star Trek), wearable computers are finally starting to go mainstream. Related: Apple, Samsung and LG: Smartwatch Showdown Set for Early SeptemberWe are seeing an explosion of wearables for just about anything you can think of –wristbands for tracking biometrics and sleep patterns, wearable computers in the form of head-up display glasses, smart earbuds that match songs to your heart rate during exercise and so on. However, most devices are health and fitness related, and if you think about how many people you know who own and actually use these devices daily, that figure is probably on the small side. This is because fitness devices can be likened to an impulsive buy — they get lots of attention at first, but after a few uses the device usually ends up stashed away in a drawer. It’s no surprise that after a recent survey conducted by Endeavor Partners, more than half of users were reported to have lost interest after a few months of use. So the biggest problem with wearables is that they just aren’t all that useful. There’s a serious need for improvements in their utility.Who wants a wearable?Given this, what should take place to increase adoption levels? One thing for certain is they must be targeted to specific niches to provide high value. Wearables must be able to address and actively provide feedback for common ailments — not simply measure biometric data. For example, Google is partnering with Novartis to make smart contact lenses that monitor diabetics’ glucose levels in tears using a wireless chip and miniaturized sensor, allowing them to better manage their condition by mitigating the risks related to infrequent glucose testing. The lenses could also slowly release drugs over time, freeing the user from remembering to take a pill or shuddering at another injection.Targeting different age segments with unique characteristics is another possibility.  An example could be wearables for the aged, where information, machines and man fuse together and create a unique synergy. This could be an exoskeleton suit that enables the immobile and aged to walk easily. For millennials who are fitness enthusiasts, clothes made of smart fibers such as OMSignal’s shirts — which can measure heart rate, ECG, skin temperature, and muscle activity — can be a likely successor to fitness wristbands by providing more accurate metrics and an added convenience factor.Related: Using Wearable Devices to Help Promote Employee WellnessEven younger generations can benefit from carefully tailored devices. For teens, wearables that not only integrate with their social lives but also are easily customizable (in the form of charms or in different colors) will be sure to grab their attention. We could see wearable pins or other pieces of fun jewelry that give status updates or social compatibility alerts based on common interests with others in close proximity. Furthermore, for babies, special baby garments made of e-textiles could monitor your baby’s sleeping position, temperature, or even when the diaper needs changing. Let’s not forget designEqually crucial as niche targeting is aesthetic appeal. We have lots of different types of wristbands, glasses, helmets and so on, but they tend to be generic and not easily compatible with existing, everyday accessories. Who wants to wear a thick, matte black wristband next to their sleek designer watch? An easy way to address this would be to integrate the wearable computer into accessories people already wear, and ensuring a large enough selection to reach a variety of styles and tastes. Google is already doing this for Glass by collaborating on designs with Ray-Ban, Oakley, and Diane Von Furstenberg. Similarly, Motorola and Withings are making elegant smartwatches disguised as designer timepieces stylish enough to compete with those people wear everyday. Related: 3 Unusual Ways Smart Tech Meets FashionWhen ‘smart’ really means smartWe need much advancement in science and technology for all this to happen. Within cognition science, machines will have to understand humans better. Specifically, they must understand our spoken commands and process data from wearables to make relevant and timely suggestions. We are seeing this with Lark, a health analytics platform pre-installed on every Samsung Galaxy S5 that provides real-time feedback based on algorithms that interpret activity data from your phone, essentially acting as a virtual wellness coach. Miniaturization of hardware and advancement in robotics is also a requirement. We will see wearables get ever smaller, or disappear from sight altogether as they become embedded in our clothing or under our skin. The ability to warn a user about an impending heart attack or stroke will soon win over the fear of implanting a microchip when one is feeling perfectly healthy. As such, daily charging of wearables will be either inconvenient or impossible if they are implanted in our bodies. Thus wireless charging will be a norm, and so will harnessing electric power from our body’s movement or blood glucose. This will allow wearables to seamlessly integrate into our lives and become an invisible but constant presence in the background.We are close to reaching these technological and scientific breakthroughs. Analogous to how smartphones didn’t really take off until dependable data transmission and aesthetically pleasing design intersected, wearable technology will require a similar story to gain mass acceptance. But the future is bright, because with these ideas in mind it’s only a matter of time until there will be wearables that people will actually want to wear.Related: Why Wearable Tech Isn’t the Next Big Thing — Yet Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.last_img read more
